Welcome to the 2017 Texas State Conference!
As 2017 marks the 103rd year of our fraternity’s founding and the 102nd year that Texas has been a part of Sigma, the importance of our state is very clear. To reflect that, our conference theme is “FIRST in Texas; ONE in Brotherhood” and that first part signifies that Phi Beta Sigma was the FIRST of all National Pan-Hellenic Council organizations with a chapter chartered in Texas. As we are very aware, history also records that Sigma was the first with a chapter south of Virginia and the first west of the Mississippi River. These are major milestones in the history of Greek-letter organizations, making Texas the launching grounds for rapid nationwide growth.
The second part of the theme highlights our leading core value, Brotherhood, which binds us together. Despite different backgrounds, skill-sets, and opinions, we are ONE and form a bond that cannot be broken. For a little more history, we pay tribute to the past with the name The Lone Star State. Formally having the distinction of being a one state region known as The Lone Star Region, we keep that name near paying homage to those who paved the way.
So, on behalf of our State Executive Board and the State Conference Planning Team, I can sincerely say we look forward to seeing you at the University of North Texas on January 27th – 28th and wish you the best for the entirety of 2017!
